A cross-country bicycle adventure is the canvas for this tale of discovery along the winding backroads of America’s heartland. The second book in the “Cycling Reflections” series, Pilgrim Spokes tells the story of the eastern half of the trans-American trek, continuing the saga begun in Neil’s award-winning previous book—Pilgrim Wheels—which reconnoiters the western half of the journey. More than just a journal of a bike ride across the country, Hanson’s delightful and beautifully written story takes the reader on an engaging pilgrimage of observation and reflection. Often hilarious, sometimes poignant, and always inspiring, it’s a must-read adventure that will stir your soul.Sb. 269pp

A great book


Reviewed By: Ron Spohn on 10/13/18

A very well written series of 2 books by this author, Pilgrim Wheels and Pilgrim Spokes. He split his cross country ride into multiple sections and thus also published 2 books because of the time lag between riding and writing. (There is also a third book with all the nuts and bolts about his trip, which I have not read.) The books gives just enough stories about the two types of fun on a big trip like this: type 1 fun is warm sunny days, downhills, tailwinds, etc. Type 2 fun is none of those things. (I also experienced both types of fun on my cross country ride.) The book is mostly about his relationships with important people in his life and the people he met on the ride. Very well written, easy to read and I found it very enjoyable, perhaps because we are of a similar age. Five stars
